Fun and friendly work place
Assistant Manager (Former Employee), Cardinal, ONNovember 10, 2014
Pros: meeting people
Cons: worked 7 days a week some times
I would punch in gas prices, deal with the customers, do safe drops and run to the bank to get more cash when needed. i have learned how to write out pay cheques, deposit money, write schedules, and how to manage employees and customers. My manager was excellent. she would answer all my questions when i had them she would help cover shifts when i couldn't – more... if someone called in. The co-workers had there ups and downs. some would show up on time and ready to work, and others wouldn't show up or never on time. the hardest part was working 7 days a week because i did the paper work on the weekends and and covered a lot of shifts when needed to. the best part was meeting new people and always having the chance to talk to customers. – less

Macs store
Postal Clerk/Customer Service Representative (Current Employee), Calgary, ABJuly 16, 2014
Pros: working independently
Cons: long hours on foot for 12 hours
Relax but very busy job. On foot all day long, no breaks. Majority customers only come for only one product. Not very regular customers. Most of them are bad & rude, theft is high cannot pinpoint if they are stealing. Boss & coworkers are all very helpful and cooperative. When people drive-off with gas without paying it is hard to cope as it is going – more... from your pocket. – less

Fun and a very safe place to work with
Cashier (Current Employee), Brantford, ONJune 24, 2014
Pros: walking distance from our place
Cons: short hours
I worked there for almost 2 years now but I realized that nothing changes, I mean I never get promotion even though I know everything I do such as the end of the day paper works. Then a question came up to my mind asking "how can i get promotion if this business is a family business?". I never thought of that earlier then I now I planned to find a better – more... job with a better promotion in the future. – less

Not a good business.
Store Manager (Former Employee), Ottawa, ONMay 1, 2014
Pros: you can set your own schedule.
Cons: a lot to do but no money.
You are your own boss, nice slogan to use. In the end all comes to how much money you make. After paying your own employees, taxes, licenses, and big time shortages, you left nothing behind for you to maintain your life. A lot of responsibilities but no reward.
So I quit.

Small town gas station
Cashier (Former Employee), Arnprior, OnApril 22, 2014
Anyone who has been inside a gas station knows what it's like to work at a Mac's, especially in a small town. Wednesdays and Sunday's were Milk delivery days, Monday's we got the cigarettes and candy in, and every day we got the newspapers delivered. It was interesting working nights, but it wasn't very busy. I would sweep, mop and clean the floors, – more... bathrooms and outside, and do any small jobs that were needed – less

Midnight Worker (Former Employee), Barrie, ONFebruary 21, 2014
Pros: was able to have all weekends off
Cons: being alone most of the time
As a night worker at Mac's my duties included dealing with all customers in a timely fashion. Handling cash, debit, and all major credit cards. Cleaning all areas of the store, as well as shocking shelves, and taking inventory. Excepting food orders as they all came in at all hours of the night, and making sure all products where accounted for.
